inverse gamma fit

I have generated a random sample in accordance to a custom pdf. The shape of this pdf looks like an inverse gamma, perhaps an inverse chi square too. Unfortunately none of the distributions in the dfitool matches my case. Therefore, I am trying to find out how to fit distributions such as the inv Gamma to this sample in order to certainly make any conclusions. The only information I currently have is this random sample.

I would appreciate anyone's thoughts.

Best Wishes,
